Career Information: Speech and Language Therapy

The Edinburgh Speech and Language Therapy Department runs information sessions for those who are considering a career in this field.  It provides the opportunity to learn a bit more about what this career entails and also gives individuals the chance to hear first hand from service users and their families about the service they have received, and hopefully, the value the service adds. 

The next session is on Thursday 29th of June, 5:30pm – 7pm at The School House at the Astley Ainslie Hospital. For further details, please click here.


S3 Girls: Engineering Summer School at the University of Strathclyde

Engineering the Future for Girls @ the University of Strathclyde


19th-23rd June 2017

Engineering the Future for Girls leaflet here.

Engineering the Future for Girls is being delivered in collaboration with BP and BAM Nuttall and is designed to engage girls in a wide range of engineering challenges that will inspire them to become the next generation of engineers. The summer school is fully-funded by BP and BAM Nuttall and all student costs, including travel, will be covered. Strathclyde will accept applications from girls with any range of subject choices at National 5.

The summer school is non-residential and therefore pupils should be able to make their way each day to the University of Strathclyde campus in the heart of Glasgow City Centre. Teachers are not required to accompany pupils during the week. For the pupils’ convenience, we have arranged for Mentors to accompany pupils from and to Queen Street train station, Glasgow Central train station and Buchanan Bus Station at the start and end of each day.

Pupils should apply here using the online application form. The deadline for applications is 10 March 2017. A confirmation email is sent upon receipt of application. The selection panel will meet in late March/early April to review the applications received and all applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by 7 April 2017.
